    And should WindSLIC fail to work your other option is to use Windows 7 Pro or Enterprise and activate it with Cody's MS Toolkit.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Go for Windows 7 Professional or enterprise and use KMS activation...!!!

    Using professional and MTK is the way even without UEFI/GPT. For 2 reasons:

    1. If you use ultimate, you put a big sign on your forehead that you're a pirate. No sane person buys ultimate, it has no additional useful features for end users compared to home or pro.

    2. You'll probably have office on your system, so you will have to use MTK anyway. It can activate both windows and office, so why no do everything at once?

    Well once again OEM activation is the best, for me this searchengine's solution is the best for UEFI/GPT. It has worked for me, and... nothing more to say.:)
